Euro Continues Rally on Eurozone Members Growth

The euro gained versus the dollar and other several currencies today as countries like Germany and France indicated a unexpected growth for the previous quarter, surprising traders and analysts, raising the positive sentiment towards the Eurozone currency.
A perfect scenario for a bullish pattern in the euro-dollar chart was set today as the German and French economies grew in the second quarter, as the Federal Reserve affirmed yesterday that interest rates in the United States shall remain low for an extended period of time, forcing the dollar down versus most of the 16 main traded currencies. Today, speculations indicate that a report is likely to show an economic rebound for all the current Eurozone country members, which is also favoring the outlook for the euro, which has been bearish since last week when it reached the highest level in months.
The euro is likely to remain high during the day if the report confirms the Eurozone diminishing contraction. Risk has returned to markets, and signs coming from main economies in Europe like Germany and France helped the euro to pare half of last risk aversion wave losses in the beginning of the week, but it is hard to determine until what level it may climb, since markets remain highly volatile.
EUR/USD traded at 1.4262 as of 9:47 GMT from a previous rate of 1.4155 yesterday. EUR/JPY traded at 137.35 from 135.23 yesterday.
